Description

High school?we all remember both the exuberance of youth and its awkwardness. Your body developed, your relationships to your family and friends shifted, you gained more responsibility and made a bid for independence. With all those changes, it's no wonder you felt confused and stammering, overwhelmed and speechless. You wanted and needed someone more experienced to help you along, someone who might not have been your parents. Kids today have many of the same questions and problems, and are still looking for that person to talk with. Seriously, if you think it was bad for you then, can you imagine going through it now? Enter Mike Riera and SURVIVING HIGH SCHOOL.This is the book you wanted then, and the book you can give to that teenager in your midst now. Written in a lively dialogue format, with a decidedly hip-but-responsible tone, SURVIVING HIGH SCHOOL strikes the balance between guidance and choice. Mike covers all the hot topics and gives teenagers the information they need to make good decisions for themselves.
